    I am currently using a Jensen HTB-805 speaker system with my Yamaha HTR-5560. I am looking to move my fronts to the rear and buy a new set of fronts as my current rears are pretty bad. I need a recommendation on a good kind for the fronts. $250 is my budget for the pair. I really don't care if they are towers or bookshelfs. I have been looking at the Yamaha NS-7390($159) or the Yamaha NS-8390 ($199) at Bestbuy.com. I don't know if these are any good, however. ALso, I only use my system for movies and never play music.

    How do you feel about dedicated speaker brands, ones you can't necessarily buy at Best Buy? The most highly regarded speakers for $250 a pair would be the NHT SuperOnes. You can buy them from www.onecall.com for about $117 each. Something a little less costly, but still good is JBL's N26 speakers, which are available at bestbuy, but much cheaper if you order them from www.jandr.com or www.bhphoto.com.
    Good luck
